Latest information for staff

Due to the ongoing developments with COVID-19, this page will be updated with any relevant information on a daily basis so please ensure to check this regularly.

FLS’s main priority is for your health and wellbeing. This is a difficult time for everyone, and we should all be looking after ourselves and each other.

For the latest health information, please see the NHS inform website which is updated on a daily basis and now includes an updated symptom list.

It is vital that in this emergency situation we all have access to the important information we need to keep ourselves informed and safe, and to be able – where possible - to continue to support our colleagues and the organisation through home working. As an additional failsafe, we have replicated here the information and guidance that is available on Saltire, some of which, as a matter of necessity, includes important contact details.
